The lawmaker urged the security agencies to do more by beaming their searchlight on Degema LGA of the state, particularly the Bille axis so as to put an end to illegal oil bunkering and sea piracy.
Maol, representing Gokana constituency and chairman, ad hoc committee on “Bille passenger boats attack” expressed the surprise in an interview with the newsmen on Wednesday, July 10, in Port Harcourt.
He said that as part of efforts to step up security and check illegal oil bunkering in the oil-rich Bille Kingdom, Degema LGA, the house had constituted an ad hoc committee in that regard.
